Pray Every Day
Jimmy Phillips has been part of the original Bakersfield sound having been raised in the Arvin Federal Labor Camp. He learned to play drums at a very young age and performed all over the west coast with such great artists as Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. Jimmy was so honored that Red Simpson asked him to record a couple of his gospel songs. This country gospel CD project has been a dream of Jimmy's for many years and is now fulfilled by the grace and blessing of God. 1. It Is No Secret (Stuart Hamblen) 2.
